## How do I compare two groups with multiple variables in SPSS?

Running the Procedure

- Open Compare Means (Analyze > Compare Means > Means).
- Double-click on variable MileMinDur to move it to the Dependent List area.
- Click Options to open the Means: Options window, where you can select what statistics you want to see.
- Click OK.

## How do you compare groups in statistics?

Use an unpaired test to compare groups when the individual values are not paired or matched with one another. Select a paired or repeated-measures test when values represent repeated measurements on one subject (before and after an intervention) or measurements on matched subjects.

**How do I select specific cases in SPSS?**

To begin, click Data -> Select Cases. This will bring up the the Select Cases dialog box. This provides a number of different options for selecting cases. We’re going to focus on the “If condition is satisfied” option, which you should select.

### How do you compare data between two groups?

Choosing a statistical test

Type of Data | ||
---|---|---|

Compare two unpaired groups | Unpaired t test | Mann-Whitney test |

Compare two paired groups | Paired t test | Wilcoxon test |

Compare three or more unmatched groups | One-way ANOVA | Kruskal-Wallis test |

Compare three or more matched groups | Repeated-measures ANOVA | Friedman test |

### What is used to summarize the relationship between several categorical variables?

To study the relationship between two variables, a comparative bar graph will show associations between categorical variables while a scatterplot illustrates associations for measurement variables.

**How do you compare data with multiple variables?**

Use scatterplots to compare two continuous variables. Use scatterplot matrices to compare several pairs of continuous variables. Use side-by-side box plots to compare one continuous and one categorical variable. Use variability charts to compare one continuous Y variable to one or more categorical X variables.

## What is the difference between select cases and split cases in SPSS?

Split File splits the data file into separate groups for analysis based on the values of one or more grouping variables. If you select multiple grouping variables, cases are grouped by each variable within categories of the preceding variable on the Groups Based On list.

## How do you analyze the relationship between two categorical variables?

Common ways to examine relationships between two categorical variables:

- Graphical: clustered bar chart; stacked bar chart.
- Descriptive statistics: cross tables.
- Hypotheses testing: tests on difference between proportions. chi-square tests a test to test if two categorical variables are independent.

**How to use match files in SPSS Statistics?**

The files specified on MATCH FILES can be IBM SPSS Statistics data files or open datasets in the current session. The combined file becomes the new active dataset. In general, MATCH FILES is used to combine files containing the same cases but different variables. To combine files containing the same variables but different cases, use ADD FILES.

### What is a nonparallel match in SPSS?

Nonparallel matches combine files according to the values of one or more key variables. In a table lookup, MATCH FILES looks up variables in one file and transfers those variables to a case file. The files specified on MATCH FILES can be IBM SPSS Statistics data files or open datasets in the current session.

### What is match case ID in SPSS?

This id tells SPSS which case from one data source corresponds to which case from the other. Corresponding cases become a single case in the merged data. The syntax below demonstrates a very basic MATCH FILES command.

**What is inc98 in SPSS?**

As you see, the variable inc98 has the data from the dads file, the file that appeared first in the MATCH FILES command. When you match files that have the same variable, SPSS will use the values from the file that appears earliest in the MATCH FILES command.
